Re: Connecting the computer to the printer

But it has to be the correct cable..

I know a customer that bought a nice shiny computer, monitor and printer but "had the printer cable"

after the printer "not working" and being brought back in several times we got him to bring everything in and it worked fine (he didn't bring in the cable).

When we finally got him to bring the cable in it looked like a few bits of wet string in a hosepipe.

One (free of charge to get him out of the store) bi directional LPT printer cable later and everything was sorted
